I read someone else's post titled "Measuing Large.."  I had my 20 week scan on 12/29 and my baby girl weighed 12 oz.  I thought perhaps that was a little large..but tech said that was good.  Can everyone post weights of their little peanut?  Thanks.

15 oz at 20 weeks 2 days (and was measuring closer to 20 weeks 6 days, but U/S has a margin of error, right? at some point in the 3rd tri the weight can be +/- 1lb?)

I have no idea what mine weighed at 20 weeks. I haven't had an apt since 15 weeks and my last scan was at 12 weeks. I have both an apt and scan this Wed, so I'll drop in and let you know what it's at for 22 weeks, if they tell me.

Due date crashing! Ultrasound weight estimates are notoriously inaccurate, and inaccuracy grows with gestational age.  This is why many women are told by docs *gasp* your baby is huge, you need a c-section, and they end up with a normal 8lb baby.  Or so I've been told ;)

Yup but they're still fun if you dont put too much weight on them (no pun intended).

 

I like to see how right and wrong they were when the baby is finally born.  I had one friend who had an estimated 4300gr baby and had one who weighted that much few days later. Another friend was told that her baby was about 3600gr at the day of the delivery and then she went and delivered a 4500gr boy.

i agree... that almost happened to my cousin.  she was told her dd was measuring large so they did many US toward the end to follow.  they estimated that if she went to her due date, the baby would be 10lbs or something like that so they were going to schedule a c/s a week or two before her due date.  the LAST US they did before they scheduled the surgery suddenly measured her at 6lbs so they decided to let her go to her due date.  her dd was born right around the due date and only weighed 7lbs 2oz... so much for the giant baby several US predicted!  

 

that being said,  i don't put much weight in what the US says but i think it's fun to compare so i'll let you know next week!  we'll see who's baby's are actually the biggest in a few months :)

LOL- Don't worry, mama- I was thinking the same about mine being the biggest.  Although as my other two were 8 and 8lbs 4, I'm thinking this little one probably won't end up being the biggest in our DDC when we really find out in a few months;)

Mine was 10oz at 18 weeks which they said was 95% I think.  Makes me a little nervous.

Had my U/S earlier and they never said it's weight. Go figure, LOL. They did say it's not bigger than it should be anymore, but it's right on target so no worries.

Mine didn't have weight in oz so I'll have to google the translation. It's 0.68 lb o 308 g. So, I'm thinking somewhere between 10-11 oz.

Due date crashing sort of (late April, guessing I'll go to early May)--anyway, mine was 13 oz at 20w3d. Doctor said it was 50% percentile for size--didn't mention if that included weight, but all the other measurements were right smack in the middle.

@Windycitymom - That is exactly what happened to me with my first pregnancy. They did an ultrasound at 39 + 5 and she was measuring 12+ lbs. They did a C-section on my due date and she was 9lbs even....

 

I won't let them scare me into that again this time :)

 

My 21 + 5 U/S showed baby at 16 oz. measuring 1 day ahead...so pretty perfect!
